          Play Bass fig. 3 twice
          Play Bass fig. 4 once
          Play Bass fig. 3 as often as necessary as the song fades out
          
         This is the way I play it but it’s supposed to be played with a pick and each ]
         stroke in this tab sheet is actually one stroke up and two down. 
         Have fun with it :)

I don't really like how they use bass fig. [blank] cause then when I try to practice, I have to scroll up and I don't like to do that a lot...
